That’s precisely, no EXACTLY, what the ‘Thingie Area’ is for. Bought a new fridge (Frigidaire FPBC2278UF) six or so months ago. As with most people, we “file away” the owner’s manual for later reference only to search for it when wanted (to order air and water filter… Continue Reading
Today was home fixer upper day. Lou has been wanting to paint the garage doors. I’ve been wanting to clear out the roof gutters where plants have sprouted because of the pigeons roosting on the gutters and dirt/crap settling. I pulled out the 22′ roof ladder to see if it will reach, and it does. So … Continue Reading
No, not rats as in darn it. But… rats! Rats in the garage crawlspace. Two weeks or so ago, the big garage door started malfunctioning. It would open via the remote, but would not close at all. We called the Raynor repair guy and found that a rat had chewed thru the wire that goes from the overhead door motor … Continue Reading
What a long story from thought origin to end decision on storage sheds. Typical of Lou and me though… how did we go from floor buffer to storage sheds?
It started out a discussion with Lou about buying a floor buffer so that I can scrub and completely clean the lanai and garage deck. Ahh, where to store the … Continue Reading
Lou and I (finally) got invited over to Justin’s and Rachelle’s place. He bought a house in Ewa Gentry Tuscany II subdivision. Seems like a cozy place, tho in a very tight yard/lot. But… that’s par for the course here in Hawaii.
Mom has been wanting to have sidewalks built on both sides of her house, especially since grass on each side doesn’t grow well (not enough sunlight underneath the overhang). Today Tony Galang (Arthur’s brother) and his crew came over to start the prep and initial digging. I had to go over with boltcutters… Continue Reading
Our main garage entrance lip has been cracking and chipping away over the years because the rebars inside the concrete are rusting. Personally, I think it’s part of the whole Haseko lawsuit thing where all their first phase development homes are showing foundation cracks because of rusting metal bars and … Continue Reading
New Year present of sorts. The solar water heater piping from the garage to the house busted, and for two weeks we had to go out to the garage to turn on hot water and then turn off when done. Had to get the piping replaced and re-run to the house… what a royal pain in the @$$…
Yep, babygirl is finally driving now. As all three kids have grown up, learning to drive and actually getting on the road has been the rite of passage to independence. As it is for all teens.
We went shopping for a car for Lina. Originally, I thought about a used car no more than 2-3 years old, maybe a Camry or Corolla.… Continue Reading
Peaches moved into her new house in the Ewa Sunrise complex and we helped her get it into shape… painting, putting up shelving in the closets, etc.. It was a 2-3 day affair, but an all family affair at that. Lou pretty much spearheaded the painting with all of us helping and taking direction from her. I did… Continue Reading
